Marlene Wells buys fresh produce from Gillsville grower Bill Evans Friday at the first annual Summer's Landing at Limestone's farmers market. Evans, who sold his tomatoes, including heirlooms, for $1 per pound, said he will be selling at the Hall County farmers market today. Wells is a private duty nurse at the assisted living and memory care facility.

Residents of a local assisted living home didn’t have far to go Friday to shop in the area’s newest farmers market. Several area farmers, as well as craft and lotion businesses, set up in the parking lot of Summer’s Landing at Limestone for the first annual farmers market. The market was to let residents at the assisted living and memory care facility get the farmers market experience without the travel, said Life Enrichment Director Rachel Wallace.

“The residents loved it,” Wallace said. “Quite a few of them grew up on farms and it brings back good memories.”

The fresh produce was a bonus, as was making the public aware of Summer’s Landing, said Wallace, who at one point stood along nearby Limestone Parkway and waved motorists in. The farmers market will be back next summer, she said.
